According to my knowledge please take the BOV out, stick with the stock BPV

welll its my old header, and its a prosport not a HKS...lol

but for 1, it's unequal length, so it makes the car sound awesome...and 2, it flows much better than a stock header....i noticed 500 rpm quicker spool from WRX header/perrin u/p to that setup, unfair comparison as he's going from EL to UEL.....but it sounds wayyy better, UEL >>>> EL........so why not?

Nice ride. The rims look baller with the OBP paint. It's also the best colour to contrast the STI badges on the fenders and really make them pop.

That really doesnt help me at all, I get that your trying to 'help' but just telling me to remove it doesnt do me any good. If you posted a reasoning or at least something that MIGHT make me think you know what your talking about, then I may take your opinion into consideration. Im not trying to be a dick or get defensive, I just think you should elaborate more on your opinion is all.

Here are FAQ for BOV, and you should at least use that search button to get some info before installing any part on your new STi.
No? it is your car and your money? BOV sounds cool?

Saw few cars tuned with BOV, hybrid or wutever 50/50 that is totally BS to me. It ended up car is running rich and well turbo oil leak...thanks to bad compressor surge. btw, there is no way to tune BOV on software so don't think you can lean it down or change tip-in or wutever BS.

I guess I talked to much, peace out...

Believe it or not i did actually read the FAQ first, because i do find the BOV annoying, hence going 50/50. But my car is mapped to run 22.5 PSI at peak (so the map said). The stock BPV is rated for '20 psi' (debatable i know), so until i get my boost gauge in and see where my boost is actually at, i was going with the notion of better safe then sorry.
